xserver-xorg-core and fglrx-driver
 
Hi,

When I update this morning (wheezy one but with sid fglrx-driver), the xserver-xorg-core was updated.

my fglrx-driver was removed,

when I tried to install, it's reported:

fglrx-driver depends on xorg-video-abi-10 or -8 or -6. which are not avaiable.


then I checked package

xserver-xorg-core(2:1.11.1-1), which has already been installed.

xserver-xorg-core-udeb_1.11.1-1_amd64.udeb on AMD64 machines seems not a good choice.
seems the* fglrx-driver (1:11-8-3) dep: xserver-xorg-core (<< 2:1.10.99)


Thanks for any suggestions,

Hi, you can either try to use the free driver for a while, AMD will
eventually deliver a compatible fglrx driver at some point ; or you can
go back in time and grab older packages on http://snapshot.debian.org/ .
Look at you apt[itude] logs to see exactly what has been upgraded,
download those packages from snapshot.debian.org, and install them with
"dpkg -i".
You must downgrade ALL xserver-xorg related packages which have been
upgraded, not just the core ones, the ABI change will make your mouse
and keyboard fail if you don't downgrade input packages for instance.

Hope it helps.

Yeah, unfortunately fglrx was removed from Debian testing recently, breaking
3d acceleration on a whole lot of systems. Now at least I know why it is
called "testing" ;-)
I hope AMD will release an update soon, and someone will set the priority to
high so that it gets to testing quickly.

Kind regards,
Ralf
